The Saudi Kingdom’s sovereign wealth fund (PIF) is closer to a deal for the takeover of English football club Newcastle United after removing a ban on Qatari broadcaster beIN, seen as the biggest obstacle.
The ICJ ruling allows Qatar to challenge airspace restrictions imposed by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt over three years ago, before UN body The International Civil Aviation Organization.
The ruling, that rejected Riyadh's national security justification for not taking action against a pirate TV outfit, could have serious implications for Saudi Arabia's prospective takeover of English Premier League club Newcastle United.
Amnesty International writes to league chief executive Richard Masters to say the takeover could be exploited by Saudi Arabia to cover up “deeply immoral” breaches of international law and human rights violations.
Mysterious Saudi-based BeoutQ channel has been showing matches that only Qatar’s beIN has a license to show.
